    🎙️🎥 Frank About Health – Radio Guest Appearance

    Earlier this year, I was invited by Frank Harrison and his co-host Phyllis Quinlan to be their guest on the TalkRadioNYC ‘Frank About Health’ radio show.   (Yep that’s right… New York City! Sadly, on Zoom rather than in person but still!)   In this episode, I tell my ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia recovery story – ‘from wheelchair to rock climbing to coaching!’. We of course, talk about NLP, what it is and what it’s all about and how it can enable us to create a powerful road map for our brain. When we harness our mindset in this way we can move forward in our lives with passion and purpose and truly live the life we so desire.   We also talk about the power of language – one of my most very favourite things to talk about! How impacting it can be when we speak to others and they to us but above all, how impacting on us our own internal language can be and therefore, how important it is to become aware of it so that we can…

    🎙️🎥 A Conversation On: Social Media Anxiety

    When I first met Rebecca, she was a photographer in her mind but not in her reality. She was stuck in a negative state of social media anxiety that was blocking both her creative and productive processes. In this conversation, we talk about our time working together and the journey that I took Rebecca on so that she could create powerful state shifts for herself and her photography career.    Essentially, she went from her primary focus being the need for constant social media interaction and her fear being that she wouldn’t succeed if she wasn’t constantly interacting (which she was doing to the extent that she wasn’t out and about taking photographs!) …to making the mighty leap of deleting all of her social media apps for one month and ONLY taking photographs in that time. At the end of that month, the result was a new photography project that was edited and ready to post on her brand new photography Instagram account that she was incredibly excited about and a renewed passion for taking photographs and the editing process.…

    🎙️🎥 A Conversation On: Healing from Grief and Loss w/ Mark Ashton

    In this episode of ‘A Conversation On’, Mark and I talk on the subject of loss in its many shapes and forms and how it can be both a positive and a negative experience. And how the loss of the old is necessary to make space for the new.  Mark and I both share personal stories of loss and grief experienced throughout our lives and how we found our way through those deeply dark and challenging times and learned many important and powerful life lessons along the way. We also throw in some self-coaching techniques for good measure! Mark is a somewhat reluctant contrarian/heretic in business, now entering the 5th decade of his career. His passion, enthusiasm and determination to tell the truth, even when it’s awkward or risky, is largely undiminished though tempered by experience. He still believes the best is yet to come and was thrilled to discover 10-12 years ago that research proves the most enduringly successful companies have a compelling purpose beyond profit.  Mark has built an international community of what he calls likeminded, like-hearted and…

    The Minimaliser Mindset

    what is: the minimaliser mindset MINIMALIST [noun]: a person who advocates or practises minimalism MINDSET [noun]: the established set of attitudes held by someone The Minimaliser Mindset is simply one of lessening.    Whether it’s the lessening of the chaotic home clutter or the monkey mind chatter, we can choose to apply a mindful + minimalist approach in our thinking, our reactions and our actions.   When we do this, we create that quiet space within us and from there, we are able to see ourselves and the world around us more clearly.   This, in turn, enables us to make decisions that will propel us forward in ways we never previously imagined possible.

    Reconnection within the Workplace

    The modern workplace can often be a noisy and chaotic space within which we find ourselves existing for a large portion of our working week. And with the current virtual office extension that is ‘back to back’ Zoom meetings, it is now more than ever, all too easy to become disconnected from those around us to protect our ability to carry out our own work. Focus shifts from ‘organisation’ and ‘team’ to ‘individual’ and while this might make us feel like we are achieving, we are also likely to be missing out on an important connection. That of our connection with our colleagues.   In 2019, the Office for National Statistics (ONS), reported that 12.4% of the UK population worked from home at some point during their working week. In 2020, that figure doubled to 25.9% – or 8.4 million people. Whilst many will welcome the option to work from home there will undoubtedly be a large proportion of that figure who will find it to be a lonely and disconnected scenario. Therefore, reconnection is now more important than ever.…

    Putting Our Past Back In Our Past

    ‘The past is never where you think you left it.’ ― Katherine Anne Porter I have a question for you.Who’s the boss of you? My answer to this question is always, without hesitation, Bruce ‘The Boss’ Springsteen. But back on planet Earth, my answer to this question will often be in debate. One recent evening I was cleaning my teeth and as I was standing there brushing away, I realised that my stomach was churning with anxiety. On investigating the trigger of this feeling, I quickly realised that it wasn’t being caused by a current struggle in my life but instead simply a voice in my head that was from a time in my distant past. As the anxiety stirred away deep within, it occurred to me how bizarre it is that a voice such a long way from me now in time and location could still be having such a strong and negative effect on my body. The human truth is…When we come out the other side of difficult times in our life we are left with a plethora…
